Introduce the latest developments in biological psychology today with the most widely used text for this area of study: Dr. James Kalat's BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY, International Edition 14E. A best-seller for more than four decades, this book combines a high level of scholarship and thought-provoking content with a clear writing style that makes biological psychology understandable and relevant to psychology students as well as biology and pre-med majors. Amusing anecdotes, quotes from contemporary researchers, precise examples and try-it-yourself activities help convey the excitement behind biological explanations of behavior. Dr Kalat introduces breakthrough findings with more than 500 new research references as recent as 2022.

Students explore new insights into brain functions, autism, antidepressants and mental enhancement and weight-loss drugs as well as the latest on auditory changes, pain mechanisms and the olfactory effects of COVID-19. Cengage Infuse also offers intuitive course management tools.
